Federal Employee Work Injuries

Federal Employee Work Injuries: Federal employees face the same injury risks as those in the private industry and different areas of the public sector. A federal worker who suffers a job-related private injury or illness can seek benefits through the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA).

The Federal Employees‘ Compensation Act (FECA) is administered by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Workers‘ Compensation Programs (OWCP). Benefits include continuation of pay for traumatic injuries, compensation for wage loss, medical care and other assistance for job-related injury or death. These benefits include coverage of wages that are lost because of permanent or temporary disability.

It can be difficult for people who have never before applied to document a federal workers’ compensation or disability benefits claim. Various experts will allow federal employees to sort through the confusion and work to pursue the advantages or reimbursement they deserve. Dr. Alex Jimenez informs the public about these issues, directing them to the proper specialists. For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez at 915-850-0900

Federal employees that are injured at work do not get benefits through workers’ comp insurance or their nation’s workers’ comp program.

 

Instead, federal employees receive workers’ compensation benefits through the Federal Employees Compensation Act, abbreviated as FECA, except for railroad workers, longshoremen, black lung coal miners, and refuge workers (that are insured under their own national laws for workers’ compensation). Members of the USA armed forces are also not considered federal employees for purposes of FECA.

 

FECA provides benefits and injury compensation for workers injured on the job, or even if their injury happened during the course and scope of their employment offsite. FECA covers both injuries and occupational diseases that arise over time work conditions. The United States Department of Labor, through the Office of Worker Compensation Programs, administers the workers’ comp benefits provided by the Federal Employees
